I am new to Ubuntu, Am trying to connect to wireless network but in the network center i cannot even select a local network there are no listings, In windows its straight forward enter in a key, however, I cannot seem to get the wireless to respond. Any ideas?
Yes, you are right, the network center does not show awailable wireless networks. To see those you have to click on the wifi-symbol at the right top corner of your display.
Then you are able to choose the network, you want to connect and Ubuntu will ask you for the wifi-key.
